This study presented an efficient design of identity-based handover authentication protocol for wireless mobile networks under the prime-order elliptic curve cryptosystem. The present work does not include the time-consuming and expensive bilinear pairing and map-to-point hash functions. The proposed protocol is analyzed in the random oracle model and also demonstrated to have other security properties, including protection against replay attack and denial-of-service attack, user anonymity and… CONTINUE READING
